America's Fake Cold War
Exaggerated Weapons Reports Artificially Fanned NATO'S "Fake Cold War"
A former senior British intelligence officer who held a key post at the heart of Britain's intelligence operations during the Cold War period has just produced a book that throws some glaring light on the highly discreditable role played at that time by his and other western agencies in worsening the threat of war.
Secretary of the Cabinet Office Joint Intelligence Committee, 1972-1975 and a top-ranking official at GCHQ, the British government's Cheltenham center for intelligence monitoring of international signals (i.e., spying globally on transmission of messages by radio, telephone and other means), the author Michael Herman, has called his revealing study "Intelligence Power in Peace and War." It portrays the western intelligence agencies, among which the CIA was the dominant partner (it was closely, and still is, connected with GCHQ), as operating virtually independently and uncontrollably in manipulating Cold War policies and tensions.
Above all was the feeding of assessments and reports to NATO governments on alleged Soviet arms programs and military planning for attack, assessments and reports that were unfounded, wildly exaggerated, or projected "worst case scenarios," according to Herman, as if they were the order of the day. The alarmist estimates, made in a tone of dire warning, made it appear throughout the Cold War that the Soviet Union constituted a "massive threat" to the West that had to be countered by even more massive responses.
The deliberate and calculated activity of the intelligence agencies, in other words, stimulated vast military expenditure, especially on the continual development and up grading of nuclear weaponry. Herman claims that false intelligence reports of Soviet intentions led to the re- equipping of the British submarine-borne Polaris missiles with new warheads costing a further $2 billion in the 1970s, and then with Polaris being replaced by the Trident missile costing nearly $20 billion. The picture painted by Herman is of an arms race whipped along by lies, resulting in ever- rising expenditure of billions of dollars by both sides, ruinous for one and near-ruinous for the other.
